April 25 in Australia and New Zealand is ANZAC Day, a day of remembrance of those who gave their lives for their country. \r\n\r\n"Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives... You are now lying in the soil of a friendly country. Therefore rest in peace. There is no difference between the Johnnies and the Mehmets to us, where they lie side by side here in this country of ours... You, the mothers, who sent their sons from far away countries, wipe away your tears; Your sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace. After having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well."\r\n - Ataturk, founder of modern Turkey, on the ANZAC troops who landed at Gallipoli, Turkey in April, 1915\r\n

Super Collie caught in a rather unflattering (or flattering, depending upon your point of view :) ) pose by a tabloid reporter, as seen though the camera lens! From John Plunkett's story "Super Collie Adventures: On the Lamb".

Another Super Collie transformation, this time Our Heroine has been transformed into a mermaid! And by the look of it, she has just realised that in this form, certain private parts of her anatomy were suddenly placed in very public view... :)\r\n\r\nColour version to follow.

Super Collie in a rather pensive moment - probably after just being told she has to wear traditional Japanese 'seifuku' sailor-suit costume while in Japan (from my story-in-progress "On Her Majesty's Shepherd Service"). Cultural briefings can be a real bitch!\r\n\r\nSuper Collie is the creation of John Plunkett and Terry Knight. Image coloured by The GIMP v2.0

More topical political commentary from Super Collie - when a certain superpower is accusing another country of developing nuclear weapons, it's not a good look when the said accusing superpower is trying to develop *more* nukes of its own at the same time...\r\n\r\nThe UN Headquarters background for this is the original concept I had for the first "Super Collie - World Threat?" picture, which I couldn't do at the time due to lack of references. I was thinking of doing a straight photo background, but decided in the end to use the photo as a reference for a more cartoony (and therefore consistent) effect. \r\nThe line about smelling the uranium is based on a quote from David Lange, a former New Zealand Prime Minister who presided over establishing New Zealand's nuclear-free laws in the 1908s.

Latest picture from the old drawing board - inspired by "the war on terror" and the Genesis song "Land of Confusion". While the latter item of inspiration was written in the middle of the Cold War, since September 11 et al it has taken on a similar significance. Even super-heroines like Super Collie must feel swamped sometimes with all the troubles of the world...\r\n

A new outfit for Super Collie?
Super Collie contemplates a less revealing one-piece superheroine outfit, though she doesn't seem quite so comfortable with it. However, this costume might be slightly more suitable for cold winters...\r\n\r\nDrawn after watching a few too many episodes of "Justice League Unlimited" on Cartoon Network and realising that most super-heroines are showing *far* less flesh than Super Collie. So I wondered, what would a more typical outfit look like?\r\nThink I'll stick with her bikini costume though as she's obviously got used to it, though this one might be useful if she has to traverse more conservative places (like Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, and the American 'Bible Belt') in her travels!\r\n\r\nInked with a combination of technical pen and brush-pen.

An illustration for John Plunkett's story "Super Collie Adventures: Dark Designs". Super Collie confronts a possessed Japanese guardian statue that is hot on the heels of the resurrected Daughter Night - but the statue isn't too concerned with whatever gets in the way of its mission!

Notional comic book cover for a proposed Super Collie story "Through A Glass Darkly", which will feature the introduction of Bronwyn Morgan-Jones (aka "Dark Collie") as Super Collie's opposite number. But how different ARE Esmerelda and Bronwyn - and who is to say one couldn't be the other?\r\n\r\n"Letteromatic" font is my friend! :)
